KATY, Texas - Officials say a driver has died Saturday after crashing their car near a Katy ISD elementary school.
Preliminary information from deputies with the Harris Co. Sheriff's Office says it happened in the 2600 block of N. Westgreen Blvd near Morton Ranch Elementary School. That's where an unidentified man, 22, was heading northbound and crashed into a ditch through the barricaded dead-end.
Deputies say it was a single-vehicle accident, so no other cars were involved but the driver was pronounced dead at the scene. It's also unclear when the crash occurred, as officials say it may have happened overnight since a bystander called it in this morning.
Right now, it does not appear alcohol was a factor and speed needs to be calculated to determine if that was the case, but an investigation remains underway.
No other information was provided, as of this writing.
